Forum: announcements Subject: Rise of the HighTech Non-Profits


We have been excited to be part of the new high-tech non-profit sector that is building the infrastructure for the digital age. Mozilla, Wikipedia, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Public Knowledge, Public Library of Science, One Laptop per Child, Internet Systems Consortium, Apache Foundation, Linux Foundation, Free Software Foundation, TechSoup, Internet Archive, Creative Commons, etc etc. We are investing in this important sector, and it is blossoming like the .com sector did 15 years ago. Mission oriented technology organizations are good backbone builders, and work well together. Long live .org.
